/ryan! romney/ryan! there we go. all right. that's great. thank you. >> cenk: oh jesus, chanted that. that was awesomely awkward. let me give you one final piece of context. the candidate leading two or three weeks following the convention has gone on to win every modern presidential election every one of them over the last 15 presidential elections. we are two or three weeks from the last convention. in fact there is only 41 days left. that's it. you are not going to make up leads like that in ohio pennsylvania florida, states that you desperately need. barring a major miracle, not a game changer, not two game changers, maybe not even three game changers, barring a major miracle this thing is already over. everybody is going to tell you all of these things because they want you to keep watching, and of course you have to vote. if you don't vote, of course you will lose. but the reality is, as the match up goes, i'm a betting man, i know when i have lost or won a game, and in this case, mitt romney has loss. all right. now when we come back they are going to try
vote for mitt romney, right? i don't think so. todaromney launched a new ad campaign. according to the "washington post," greg sargent, this new 60-second television ad, well, it's goingo replace all english-language romney ads in nine states. it's another attempt to soften romney's image. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. he'sticking ufor idob that's kind of cool, isn't it? romney hopes this video will have an impact. but there's another video affecting romney's campaign in a very much bigger way. >> and so my job is not to worry about those people. i'll never convince them they should take personal respbity and care r r s. >>t is brutal. the hidden fund-raiser video where romney disparaged 47% of americans is not helping with swing voters. it's also hurting romney with his base. "the new york times" talked to a worker, kenneth myers, an unemployed republican from ohio. romney's cments didn't sit llh s. "the last thing, where he was going on about the 47% who are dependent on
o'reilly thinks he's got romney's problem figured out. >> the problem mitt romney has right now is a perception that he's out of touch with the folks. the president has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on ads stating that and the governor does come across as a classic rich guy. it's tough to picture him super sizing his meal at mcdonald's. >> this is the old fashioned analysis that he's out of touch. i think charles's point trumps all of this that really what is coming across to people, he's not competent. that is possibly the worst thing that could come across. >> i was waiting for charles to say the word loser. the thing is for romney not only does it calcify among the electorate -- >> loser. i would never go that far. >> loser is deadly in a campaign because it starts to affect donors. nobody wants to put money behind a lowester. it starts to affect the media's impression of you. it becomes a metastasizing cancer in any campaign. the only thing i would take issue with is that i think people do know what they think he would do. that's the other problem. when you look add
and mitt romney has two. >> stephanie: apparently the treese and the polls not the right height in michigan or anywhere. newt gingrich >> romney campaign has yet to find a way of explaining itself and laying out the difference between romney and obama. and i think that's a problem. they seem to have this overly methodical model where they keep saying the same thing, and the world is too fluid arsophisticated for that. >> stephanie: somebody needs to reboot the rom-bot. >> i love hearing newt gingrich giving advise on how to run a campaign for mitt romney. i'm surprised he didn't pause of the word model. and think, ummm models. >> stephanie: [ inaudible ]. >> a two-word axiom we ought to emblazen on everything we have. liberalism kills whether it's in a family, university, education, whether it's in government and especially in denomination liberalism kills. >> stephanie: well. that's a simple line. there's one theme to that radio show there. >> this guy is basically a crypto historian. he believe that jesus personally concurred america and then wrote the consti
community backers of romney and ryan are saying right now, and these guys are not tea party people, they are not idea logically opposed. they are worried about an inco n incompetent presidency, his stimulus package not working anywhere near his expectations, goes out and does something economically dumb, a mandate known as obamacare. neil: these echoes this service they are getting nervous in the business community. even as americans by their consumer confidence figures are getting more optimistic. >> and average americans may be getting more optimistic, looking at be round table, ceo survey, they are not, they look at economic and employment trends. neil: when your boss is not optimistic that should alarm you. >> that ceo survey index is like an economic indicator, is the lowest it has been since 2009, that is right after the financial crisis. that is not confidence among the ceos, that is why they are worries about 4 more yores of president obama and that is why they are freaking out. neil: charlie thank you, charlie gasparino, much more on the issue, mitt romney may be down in t
. all right, that's great. thank you. >> it's possible to forgive poor mitt romney for feeling a little overshadowed by his running mate. after all, it's hard to compete with a guy who can catch fish with his bare hands while at the same time promoting a budget that would rob kids of their free lunch meals. how much of mitt romney's campaign belong to mitt romney? you can't help but wonder if mr. romney is just going along for the ride. joining us is tim dickinson of "rolling stone." his new article is in the current issue of the magazine and an excellent read it is, too. tim, i'd like to show you something before we delve into your article. just take a listen to this, tim. >> the only thing that limits you is your god given talent and your own effort. we need to have that dynamic economy returned. do you that by growing the economy and getting people a hand up, not a hand out. teach a man how to fish, he can feed himself for a life. don't simply feed fish. >> right. sow doesn't believe in handouts. he won't even feed the fish. he wouldn't feed pigeons in central park for fear they'd be
well it's going to reflect on the down boll ballot. >> right now, obama leads romney by seven points in wisconsin. what effect do you think -- when you're traveling every day, working 24 hours a day practically campaigning, your head is around meeting people, remembering names, being nice to people, and trying to think. the other thing going on the whole time, they're trying to think to make their president. how does that get into people's minds, do you think, when they're talking to you? >> yeah, i have to tell you that when people are focusing on the u.s. senate race they're asking themselves a couple basic questions, whose side are you on? who's fighting for the hard working middle class families of wisconsin? they know i'm on their side and that's what i've done. they're also learning a lot about what tommy thompson has been doing for the last decade of his life. he left wisconsin and joined the bush administration. in his service there, he gave the drug companies a sweetheart deal with the medicare part "d" program. he made it illegal for medicare to bargain with the drug compan
the one guy who says we were building our own coffin, right? today we learned that, you know, romney was talking about harvesting these companies. i mean, again, i think he h a fuenfls a candidate. when you hear this lack of compassion, 47%, again, it plays into a central narrative and other things we have heard about him. >> okay. we've got a little bit of that tapehat karen obliquely referred to then. let's take a listen. >>ainapal i an investment partnership which was formed to invest in startup companies and ongoing companies then to take an active hand in managing them and hopefully five to eight years later to harvest them at a significant profit. >> now, that was taken from motheron min onnowoweas edited. it was clearly some kind of internal bain capital business. your reaction to that tape, michael? this man saying in his own words that his business wasn't about creating jobs. we know it never wa asut investing, piling on debt, and then harvesting value out of the companies. >> i think what it does is show the challenge of moving from the business world to politics. it's some
voters on understanding economic problems people are having right now. ama beats romney by 31 on connecting on their problems. 51 points in florida -- actuly, . on handling taxes, president obama beats romney by a wide margin, 17 points in ohio. in florida it's closer, leads by one. in handling medica, obama beats romney by 1 in ohio, 15 in florida. what i understand, looking at the differential, orida has a lot retired pple, ou very sensitive. in a sense, ohio has people who can't afford to get down to florida in the wintertime. their social security, medicare, and maybe if they're lucky, some pension and savings. you know, we've talked about this for mons now. afth10ct oba sat down and thought about what his message is, his vision is, his strategy going into 20 1237 that's what i wrote about in howdown" and he's stuck to passn, because he believes in it. there's a real distinction between him and republicans when it comes to all those issues you just talked about, but these are value-driven differences. t just poly differences. you wanto do this with the deci wanto dohat. '
. with the media saying one thing, and at my gut, i say, well that is not the case. >>guest: you are right. romney advisors are saying this got us here despite the media. >>neil: the republican guys are saying that was getting the nomination, very different in the election. >>guest: this is highspotsers that are saying this. it is different than me and you and the guys at "new york times" or whoever criticizing him. these are his money guys criticizing him. >>neil: on the issue of simpson-bowles where they think they found, the opponent, a weakness, the inconsistency, react to this. how will the wall streeters react to this? you mentioned simpson-bowles, sir, and you voted against that. so your critics --. >>guest: that part. >>neil: your credits say you talk a good game but you do not deliver the goods. >>guest: here is what people do. if you don't like the plan that someone put on the table put your plan on table. that is what i d i passed a budget through congress. mitt romney offered a plan. president obama hasn't done that. he disavowed simpson-bowles and offered no alternates. >>guest: he is
his entitled to health care. and right after romney beamed with pride for making health care an entitlement for virtually everyone in histate, the same mitt romney got up on stage minus later and said this. >> obama care is really exhibit number one of the president's political philosophy. and that is that government knows better than people how to jngnoe ren ves. finney and robert reich. professor reich, the romney flip flopping now, it's instantaous, now sepated by minutes. he's getting caught up desperately on the issue of health care as we just saw. romney care versus obama care. it seems like just -- and you've atehaviorally what we're seeing here in this candidate is a form of public panic. the flip-flopping is related to him being absolutely lost at this point as a candidat enhihari it's a form of desperation. what this candidate is displaying is a lot of different voices yelling into his ear from different aides, saying you've got to be this kind of candidate. some of them are saying in response to that 4 video, you' go css so all day today, romney in ohio was going
politicians wld rather talk about anything but thecy,ndhe w looking at right there, mitt romney, seems to be exhibit 1 in daniel henninger's argument. how does mitt romney turn it around and laser focus on the economy and make the sale next week in time? >> wes goi tbed bee le are feeling a little bit better about thei lives. you know, they've paid off their credit card debts. their 401(k)s are back where they were. you kn, as steve ratner jt showed, their housing prices -- values are goi up. you know wha i wld ds - yo, john mccain very, very successfully made government seem foolish by picking out stupid earmarks. you know, the sgest argument i've seen mitt romney m i , yo know, the government -- the government's regulatory apparatus has bogged down. you know, i would have him go at stupid regulation tricks. you know, there are all tse silly regs that have been paed, u kn,n tls thoused to vote for or vote against, joe. and i think that he has to run against the federal government at this point rather than against the economy. >> willie? >> john? sorry. thout joe was gngoay th i ree wi
to magically right lf t i -os thought it was an interesting -- that sound we played from romney, kind of backing away from his announcement that everybody's tax res are going to go down. it is, i think, an atput math mat kaly impossible. to balance the budget and cut rates you have to close loopholes on middle income earnings which means their taxes go up. >> it's responsive to the effective line in the speech about take two tax cuts and cal er p40 years the hasi republican solution has been a tax cut and david's chart proves the point. years and years ago, decades, when rate was % top earner rate, cut from 70% to 50%, yes, mas a really big differen. w tte' cngm to 35 or 35 to 32 or 32 to 31, you're not getting much bang for your buck. really each incremental piece that you take off from the revenue matters in the budget. i think they're not stup about this, they know tre's not a lot to be gained from saying we g you an extra 3%. they may try to get in front of it or erase it as quickly as possible. >> the bigger issue, as we talk about, putting more money in the pockets of a higher
in place. what do you make of this movement now on -- by folks on the right, you saw mitt romney earlier this hour trying to make there's a democratic issue? this is something that the president somehow did on his own or just put this on the plate of democrats in congress and not take any sort of -- not -- to say they're not accountable for the votes? >> well, the goal of the sequester was to try to put some pressure on ourselves to address a long-term balanced bipartisan solution to deal with the debt and deficits in this country. as you point out, when we pass the budget control act, that included the sequester, it was a very strong bipartisan vote and the senate and in congress. it was signed off on by the leadership on both sides and both houses. and so, i think this is an effort that we need to follow through on. the goal was never to let the sequester to go into effect, never to do across the board cuts. i don't know anybody who thinks that's a good idea. so what we need to do is roll up our sleeves and come up with a long-term solution that addresses all aspects of the budget, the
, and they're screeching about how the polls are rigged. romney's people know they're in big trouble, right? down about ten in ohio. even the fox news poll shows romney losing in a lot of these swing states. they understand they're in trouble. do they believe they've got a chance to turn it around? >> they do and they do. they know they're in trouble and they -- you know, they have tried a little bit to play the polls or bias game in the last couple days. but pretty half-heartedly as far as i can see. you know, they argue that they're within the margin of error in ohio. a lot of people don't really understand how margin of error works. so you can be pretty far behind and still be within the margin of error because it applies to both candidates. when something says a 4.5% margin of error, they'd have to be nine points apart. they realize they are significantly down in ohio, they're significantly down in the swing states. they know that -- they think that governor romney, the ad yesterday, they were very happy with. they think it was very -- a very effective ad. they think that they're sharpe
, but there had been signing of trouble there. there were signs of trouble right away. remember when mitt romney went a little rogue himself on the subject of libya and essentially accused the president of treason. that's going way out on limb there. the vice president's job is to go right on that limb with him and cover the president's pack. but he didn't do that. he let mitt romney hang out there on his own. if there's a problem here, i imagine it has to do with ambition. that's what roger simon was touching on. paul ryan was supposed to bring excitement to the romney campaign. instead he brought a lot of pants on fire ratings from the fact checkers. mitt romney was supposed to be paul ryan's ticket to the white house but things aren't going so well and paul ryan is probably thinking i've got a mill stone around my neck. this isn't going to help me for 2016 at all. if there is bad blood between them, that's what it is. they're separate ambitions are not being satisfied by one another. >> certainly that springtime appearance in florida that was secretly recorded is not doing the ticket any faye
general been corrected or removed? no. it has not. it is still right there on mitt romney's campaign web page. and then there's the now-infamous welfare ad from the romney campaign last month. >> president obama quietly ended the work requirement, gutting welfare reform. >> that is not true. that did not happen. president obama did not strip the work requirement out of welfare quietly or otherwise. quite the opposite, in fact. which, again, has been pointed out ad nauseam by political reporters. but the romney campaign's response about getting caught lying about president obama's welfare policies was not to correct or remove the ad, like mitt romney has said has always been done, that ad. been done, that ad is still there on their campaign web page. in fact the campaign responded by telling we're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers. when he was asked about the untrue welfare ad. >> any time there's anything that's been amiss we correct it or remove it. the president on the other and. >> even the welfare ad? >> absolutely. it has been shown time and again that the p
.com. tell us how you want it signed, we'll get it out to you right away. mitt romney in ohio for the last two days with paul ryan. president obama in ohio yesterday. ginger gibson, national political reporter for politico was in ohio with the romney campaign. she's back in d.c. this morning joining us on our news line. hi, ginger good to talk to you. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> bill: so presidential candidate mitt romney in ohio yesterday gets news that in the latest "new york times" cbs poll he is 10 points behind in ohio. here is -- i'm sure you heard it when you were out there. mitt romney's official response. >> romney: well, i'm very pleased with some polls less so with other polls but at this point, polls go up, polls go down. >> bill: what were you hearing from the romney campaign people? >> romney's campaign is picking up the new sort of republican line that we're hearing this year at a lot of the -- that a lot of the polls are being skewed. they're arguing the point that too many democrats
it is the romney campaign loses florida, their chances of winning the 2012 election are close to zero i think. and right now this point the obama campaign is running a little bit ahead in florida by several points, according to the latest polls. if we look at the pattern of support among groups like hispanics, we look at the patter of support among groups like the white working-class where again you see the best group for romney, mccain carried in by 17 points in 2008. we look at the breakout and we are not seeing any progress being made among these voters. we are not saying a noticeably bigger margin among white working-class voters for the gop candidate. it's not happening. the margins look to be pretty similar to what they were in 2008. so by and large not much progress is being made by the romney campaign. in virginia we see again some demographic change happening there on the right with white working-class going down and white college graduates going up. and again in virginia, the key to virginia for romney would have been to widen the margin that you be candidate was going to get among
believe you. stuart: and dow jones industrials average 56 higher. 13, 468 right now. mitt romney told voters his tax plan might not decrease tax bills as much as they might expect. is he backtracking and telling the truth? and joining us is former new york mayor rudy guiliani. if is he backtracking if they don't get the 20% tax rate cut and cut the deductions which these people get even more, is he backtracking? >> i think he's trying to put the emphasis on deficit reduction because many' probably, guessing, i haven't seen it, in the polling probably concerning people more than anything else. as long as people can feel, i'm not going to get a tax increase, might think he's producing about as much enthusiasm as optimism as he needs to produce to get our economy going. stuart: i'm reading between the lines, you don't care for that. >> i'm a big tax cutter, cut taxes 23 times as mayor, 3 billion. it worked for me. i cut the hotel tax, collected more from the lower tax than the higher tax, i'm convinced if you got rid of the sales tax in new york you'd see another 500,000 jobs here. you'd
in europe he will be facing trouble. but we are somewhere right now splitting the difference. >> republican mitt romney's campaign pounced on today's numbers. >> eventually you are going to need an elec ron microscope to detect any growth at all in the obama economy. >> new fox poll shows romney is in the capitalizing. on the question who do you trust to do a better job on the economy, president edges him 47 to 46%. >> if i could sit down with you in living room or around the kitchen table here is what i'd say -- >> he unveils a new informal ad touting his plan and ripping romney. >> gor romney believe -- governor romney believes with bigger tax cut for wealthy and fewer regulation on wall street, all of us will prosper. he'd double down on the same trickle-down policies that led to the crisis in the first place. >> now the labor department has also revised upward the private sector jobs created by the president to 5.1 million. a hopeful sign that might be pulling the president up in those polls. bret? >> bret: okay, ed. ahh. numbers from wall street were a bit better today. dow gained 72 t
but first right now some brand new stories and breaking news. jon: zeroing in the on the swing states. dueling campaign events in the same political battleground of virginia. governor romney and president obama both expected to speak there shortly. plus the obama administration insists sanctions are working to keep iran's nuclear ambitions in check. others have serious doubts. what happens if the doubters are right? in the race for the white house do the polls paint a fair picture? is there media bias? our "news watch" panel weighs in. all new, all live is "happening now." jon: welcoming jenna lee back from italy. i have hope you had a good --. jenna: our friends maya and pat had an amazing wedding. congratulations to them. back to work today. jon: big day on the campaign trail for the candidates today. we have every angle covered. touchdown tore football fans. i'm jon scott. jenna: i'm jenna lee. first the headline today is that the strike is over. the nfl and the referees union reaching what some are describing as a tentative labor agreement. we'll see if it sticks. this afte
the carpet. if mitt romney says something, it's front page news. >> jon, my counterpart is right, this has been happening for a long time, but it's gotten worse lately. and where do you hear in the press that the president has only met with his jobs council once since january, that the president with the attacks in benghazi, he won't come out and say they were truly terrorist attacks. >> oh, he said that. >> he did not come out publicly and hold a press conference in n saying that. let me finish, please peter, i did not interrupt you. where do you hear in the liberal mainstream media that the president's jobs bill where he says republicans are blocking him, that his own democrats voted down in the senate. and one last one that's a doozy, that harry reid has not put forth a budget in three years. so basically, journalists today that do biased reporting, they're actually doing themselves a disservice in their trade. i mean, this is an election year. people tune to the news to be informed. jon: we just got those gdp numbers out today, peter, 3.3% -- 1.3% growth in gdp in the most recent quart
? >> right now obama in the polls is at 53%. it means it is not good enough for romney to pick up the undecided voters. which might mean like a crisis and you rup. the bullish sign has been in the stock market which has been getting jittery like spain and europe. romney is running out of time like routine things like the debate. bill clinton told me that the debates are going to be crucial for romney. the first debate if he can turn around the 47% fiasco. it could be a disaster. the impression he gave that comes with being a wealthy detached guy not caring about people who need help. what would you recommend he do? >> i think the 47% comment revealed, he wasn't doing what you should do play to the center. he has written off peak who have the median income and below. the text book strategy is can you find a way. he is not taughting out ideology saying i can be a reasonable manager. that was his message at first sand he is trying to find different approaches which is what you do when you are losing and he should have stuck to the message he had all along instead of trying to pick pa
the white house without it. >>> despite the polls piling up against him mitt romney insists he can win. >> i believe in america, and i believe in you. i believe you're gngo hp whi'lll t all right. >> i want to bring in carl bernein, contributor to "the daily beast" and lynn sweep, columnist and bureau chief for the chicago sun times. good morning to both oyou. >> gor. youookseollsnd you wonder, carl, if you're running mitt romney's campaign, what do you do now? do you hear that clock ticking? >> i think there's a fundamental problem and that is the republican party. that their polls reflect the fact that the real issue in this campaign h become the bl p iwashington, and that it's a radical party such as we've never seen in a presidential race before, that mitt romney has become a captive of it. as we have seen in the senate races that are shifting more and more towards democrats who are expeed to lose or be mpete,t'sbout t republicans are in washington and really radical message that romney is saddled with and he can't get out of it. the 47% remark is devastating because iteally reflects wha
. we told you about the brand new poll showing that that man in swing state of ohio is amitt romney by 10 percent. but are they really swinging toward the president? or is there skewing going on by the left-based main stream med yampt a number of people on the right feel that there is something, a polster media polling bias and what they do, they sample more democrats than republicans and naturally the democrats will wind up with the vote. why will they do that? one perhaps to keep mitt romney's donors from coughing up more cash and keep people from doing early voting. >> gretchen: the idea is why do they weight it one way to the other. they base it on the turn out in the last election cycles. they see more democrats came to the polls they weight it to democrats as opposed to the republicans and defendants. >> steve: what about 2010 and the land slide with the republicans winning be you when mr. obama had a highly motivated base of young people and latinos? which model do you follow. >> brian: we'll listen to karl rove and then we'll talk. >> when news agencies like the cbs news rep
is you lose time and if you want to switch to a sports analogy, right f obama leads by a touchdown, so to speak, in the first quarter it doesn't mean much. but we are in the fourth quarter and romney just maybe fumbled giving obama interception again. nothing impossible but you need a couple of good breaks. >> many predictions fail. nate silver, thank you. >>> coming up, celebrity, power, success and the importance of helping others. my all-star panel at the clinton global initiative. [ male announcer ] every day, thousands of people are choosing advil®. here's one story. i'm sean. i switched to advil® 10 months ago. biking can be really tough on the lower back and your upper thighs. you have some nasty aches and pains. i really like advil® because it takes care of it all. neck ache, shoulder pain and definitely lower back pain. i use advil® because my wife, she's a nurse, she recommended it. [ male announcer ] make the switch. take action. take advil®. and if pain keeps you up, sleep better with advil® pm. and if pain keeps you up, romney: "it's time to stand up to the cheaters"
, are they kidding themselves? >> well, i think that's internal to the romney campaign, i don't even know those numbers but i can tell you the two ads we just saw are engaging on the right topic for the american t voters. a business round-table last week had a meeting. our ceo said it privately and then publicly yesterday, we released a big drop, third sharpest drop in expect i guess so as of ceos on sales and hiring than we've seen in ten years. the economy is not good and for the candidates for the presidency to be talking about competing growth agendas, that ought to be good ground for romney. >> why is that message not getting out? what has he done that's not been effective? >> i don't know. maybe taxes, tapes, conventions. >> 47%, yeah? >> no, i think what he is, this is a long time in this campaign. i believe with governor kasich. before governor of 1990, the weekend before in the front page of the paper said i would lose 54-40. these polls are not what voters are thinking often and i say let these candidates engage on the economic issues. governor romney can't win on those issues, he won
. that is not being taken into account in a lot of these polls. but doug is right to say that we have to deal in reality, and reality is obama may not have this kind of substantial lead but he certainly is leading. i think team romney now understands that. we're five weeks away from the campaign, from the election, rather, and what you're seeing from the romney campaign is a real focus. five weeks away. obama is leading. by at least a little bit anyway, if not tied. so this really does focus the romney team's mind. martha: which brings up a great point, doug. psychologically, what is the impact of seeing these numbers which we have all been used to seeing neck-and-neck throughout the process? you suddenly see these big swings where looks like president obama is leading by a lot. it does a couple things. it may motivate and put fire under the romney campaign but also may make democrats overconfident. >> well, i think it also could, well create some enthusiasm for the democrats. that's not a partisan statement. martha: could be. >> it could also, martha, and this is something that i think monic
